I have tried every diet and every gimmick out there, I have bought numerous excercise tapes and joined many programs, nothing worked. I found out i had diabetes tyIpe2 and high cholesterol, I tried to eat right and took lipitor but nothing was working. I talked with my doctor and decided to have the gastric sleeve done to lose the excess weight and to relieve my diabetes and high cholesterol. So far so good only gastric reflux is a problem. I have found out that if i take nexium at 5 am it works so much better to control reflux. I am very happy i had the sleeve done.
